We believe theatre is for everyone.

We provide tickets at a range of price points and offer discounts for target groups, in line with our Pledge.

We also proudly offer discounts for concession card holders, people under 30, seniors, Companion Card holders, the arts industry, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and group bookings. Click here for more details.

Please note: discounts are subject to availability and may not be available for all productions. Standard terms and conditions apply.


Becoming a Subscriber unlocks a discount on every ticket, so plays are cheaper than purchasing individually later in the year. Simply take your pick of 3+ plays from the season ahead and you’ll also enjoy great benefits like access to the best available seats, flexible date changes, payment instalments and more.

The more plays you choose, the bigger the discount you receive.


Previews are the performances before Opening Night and an exciting milestone in a play’s development. Select a preview for a big discount on your tickets and you’ll be one of the first people to see the play!


Choose performances on Mondays to Thursdays and you’ll pay less than seeing Friday and Saturday performances (or try your luck with Weekend Rush).


Experience our world-class live theatre on Fridays and Saturdays for just $35 per ticket with Weekend Rush. We won’t even charge you a booking fee!


Concession-priced tickets are available for some productions two hours prior to each performance for pensioners, seniors, unemployed people, full-time students, and members of the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance (MEAA).
